Not really a kill, but funny

My drive home from works includes a few miles of freeway, last night I'm cruising at 60 in the right lane, no one else on the road. A car comes up behind me so close that I can't see headlights in any of my mirrors, I know exactly that he's trying to draft me. So I reach down and turn off cruise control, pull the shifter into neutral and just coast, I get down to almost 35 before I see a blinker start flashing, at which point I get back in the throttle. He gets back behind me AGAIN, RIGHT up on my @$$ (later tests with my wife's car conclude that he was no more than 3' off my bumper...at 60 mph). I knew that brake checking him was not an option since he'd go right under the bumper and then I'd have to deal with reports and ambulances and likely a medivac...bad news. So I try to smoke him out, no luck, just backs off for a second then right back into the slipstream. At this point I'm livid so I say F*** YOU @$$ WIPE and flip on the switches for my bumper mount "backing assist" LEDs and the LED bed lights I installed in the toolbox as work lights for the bed. Needless to say they lit up his interior enough for me to see the panic in his face as he slammed on the brakes.

I do NOT like people like that. When they're hood disappears and half the windshield goes away, they're getting close. Starts making me nervous because there is no way THEY can see what's ahead.
